3 Helpful Maintenance Tips for Linoleum Flooring, New York, New York

Linoleum flooring is durable, versatile, and aesthetically appealing. It’s also easy to maintain, which is why it’s popular for commercial facilities. If you have this type of flooring in your business, use the simple tricks below to keep it clean and shiny at all times. 

A Brief Guide to Linoleum Flooring Maintenance

1. Remove Any Scuff Marks

Scuff marks can develop from people’s shoes. Fortunately, you can get rid of small ones with a pencil eraser. If the mark is large, mix baking soda and water to rinse it off.

For stubborn spots, take a smidgen of baby oil and combine it with a degreasing spray cleaner. Use the mixture to scrub the floor and remove the mark.

2. Use Gentle Cleansers

Instead, use a product with a neutral pH to wipe the floors. Rather than saturating the mop, dampen it with  lukewarm water and dry after you’re finished.

3. Keep it Polished

Linoleum flooring looks its best when it’s properly polished. You may have to reapply a coat every week, or more frequently depending on the level of foot traffic your business receives.

To do this, wash the surface using the steps outlined above, then apply two coats of floor polish after it dries. Let the flooring dry again between applications. Choose only products that are made specifically for linoleum and put up wet-flooring signs to keep people away from the area while it dries.
